Background Slideshow

At Christ Church Primary we believe that reading really matters and we aim for excellence in reading achievement throughout the school. Reading gives pupils the chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually; we provide a wealth of opportunities for pupils to read widely and often, enabling them to both acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know.


It is our aim that pupils at Christ Church Primary School read with confidence, fluency and understanding, using a range of independent strategies. They learn to take responsibility for their own learning, demonstrate a love of reading and a desire to read for enjoyment. Through reading widely and often, they develop a growing vocabulary and become adept at using their creativity, imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness. Reading is embedded throughout the curriculum and in all subject areas.


Our vision states that we wish our pupils to ‘aspire together through love’, fulfilling their potential and flourishing in every aspect of learning.  We hope that the children in our school will master the reading curriculum and experience the fascination that reading widely and often can bring.
